While I am a relatively new quilter, I have been sewing for a long time. When my mom said I started at age 3 or 4, lately considering my own kids... I was thinking she was far braver than I?! On her last visit, she brought my first machine that I had completely forgotten about. This is it.
It is battery powered, and a real needle inserts in the machine. (Somehow, I still have to figure it out but I'm afraid my 3yo will want to use it and I don't know if I want to share!) And you can see below, there was even 3 speeds to choose from.
After this machine, I moved on to her Singer and began by turning the fly wheel by hand.
And of course what is the thing to sew when you are 3 or 4? Barbie clothes! So the envisioning of a completed projects with a specific fabric began very early!
Hi, my name is Karen and I have been addicted to fabric & sewing for over 35 years...how about you? What was the first thing you sewed? And when did you become addicted to fabric?
